First stop was lunch at Bert and Ernie's! Doesn't the name make you smile? Back when we lived in Helena we would go to the original restaurant with our little one and have our fresh made sub sandwiches and she would eat little cubes of meat and cheese and fruit they would prepare for her. The place was packed and we got a lovely table near the windows and the hostess thanked us for being so patient (as she cleaned the table) and I told her, "Life is too short to be impatient." She liked that. :) We had a wonderful meal and then I was ready to shop!
Golden Girls Antique Mall, right on Last Chance Gulch is a great store. Two floors and everything imaginable to buy. And they have a resident "shop cat". He was in his favorite spot and ready for me to pet him.
I found some treasures and I even swore a bit when I came around the corner and spied a cookbook (Gladys Taber's Stillmeadow Cookbook) that I have been looking for for years. I was sooooo excited! Plus, I found a little cookie tin in the blues that I love, and a little Stan Laurel doll, that tho it is a bit creepy, I just had to have....lol. Then my eyes rested on a little bag of sequined ornaments. Now, the last thing I need is more ornaments, but these were so pretty and I could just imagine a little old lady making them one year and now they were so sad sitting in a ziplock bag. I bought them and will set them free!
It was a perfect day and Hubby and I had such a wonderful time chatting and laughing and sharing. It is hard to get us in one place for any length of time...lol Today my Griz play and I will get myself all cozy on the couch and catch up on some letter writing. Off I go, Always, Kit
